CAMDEN, S.C. – The High Point University men’s golf team shot a combined 619 (316-303) on Saturday to finish the day in 15th place at the Camden Collegiate Invitational in Camden, South Carolina. Senior LJ Georgetti was HPU’s top finisher with a two-round score of 150 (78-72).

“Our team didn’t come close to playing to their potential today,” head coach Greg Flesher said. “We embarressed oursevles with our first round score. Our short game, chipping and putting was not even close to where it has been. We worked hard after the 36 holes of play and tomrrow we will see if the results improve. We are a young team and the short game conditions today showed our weaknesses. We drove the ball well enough to compete.”

Georgetti ended the day in a tie for 57th to lead the Panthers. The senior recorded four birdies on the day including three in the second round. Sophomore Jack Sides finished one-stroke back of Georgetti in a tie for 60th with a two-round score of 151 (74-77).
